Great Yountville Wine Tasting Venue: Cosentino Winery


Another great tasting option we recommend while booking Yountville itineraries is Cosentino Winery (@cosentinowinery). They are one of the first guests who will see driving up Hwy 29 coming from Napa making their location second to none for the last minute or on the fly tastings. Their tasting room is often busy in the mornings when people drive into the valley or when passing by in the afternoon since it’s very easy in & out to finish off the day. Unlike most of the other wineries, Cosentino also stays open until 6pm making it perfect for locals to swing by after work and enjoy one of their flagship wines.

Their winery is located directly next door to one of our favorite Yountville restaurants @mustardsgrill and guests often head over for a quick tasting while they wait for a table. A small wooden bridge connects the two properties passing above a small creek which truly gives credence to the Yountville atmosphere of charm & romance. The winery itself is reflective of a Mediterranean exterior with ivy and tall cypress trees surrounding the area. Their tasting room offers both indoor or outdoor patio experiences with wines that can be paired with local chocolates or tapas available from their snack menu.

While tasting you must absolutely try their signature Cigar Zinfandel which is both deep & alluring with aromas of spice, peppercorn, and chocolate. No wonder it’s one of the most popular varietals on their menu!🍷🍫

Yountville Find: Handwritten Wines


Napa Valley is certainly known for its big bold Cabernet Sauvignon wines. When we receive requests to schedule tastings that specialize in this varietal we always include @handwrittenwines in Yountville. Because they focus on small batches & sourced from premium vineyards within Napa Valley, the result is a wine that is crafted rich yet has the structure to age over time. Winemaker Rob Lloyd has created techniques that allow the fruit to be handled in a way that slowly coaxes the truest of flavors nature has to offer.

But the most popular aspect about touring the property is the option to book a personalized farm tour with their chef which includes education about sustainable practices with their winemaking. The experience is second to none & one of the most intimate and interactive tours available in the region. There are a number of animals that live onsite including chickens and a few goats used for homemade cheese. There are even beehives in the orchard that produce honey you can purchase in the gift shop. The tour concludes with a cottage food & wine tasting where the chef prepares a gastronomic experience that you won’t ever forget! ✍🏼🍷

A Napa Valley Legend Established in 1881: The Oakville Grocery


One of the most popular and enjoyable lunch stops for our guests is Oakville Grocery. Established in 1881, it’s been a trademark of the Napa Valley for its array of artisan cheeses, deli sandwiches, and diverse wine selections. Their flagship location is nestled amongst a landscape of wildflowers and grapevines, rolling hills, and some of the most revered wineries in the region including Robert Mondavi Winery (@Robert Mondavi) and the Opus One Winery {@Opus-1). This makes it easy to swing by with guests to enjoy lunch at one of their outside picnic tables and take a breather in between tours. Just recently they added a brick oven to include fire-roasted pizzas which has been a huge hit.

But the best part about visiting Oakville Grocery is that it’s become a vibrant gathering place for locals, visitors, wine drinkers, and culinary connoisseurs in the community. It is a must add to your Oakville itinerary. Just be sure to save room for their homemade desserts 🍨

A Discerned and Unique Experience: Nine Suns Winery


For our guests looking for more of a discerned and unique experience, we recommend booking a tasting at none other than Nine Suns Winery (@ninesunswine) in St. Helena atop the Pritchard Hill region.

The name Nine Suns was carefully chosen to honor their heritage which embodies the experience of wine through past, present and future. It comes from a Chinese legend where ten individual suns would rise and set each day taking turns doing so. One day all ten suns rose at once and the earth soon suffered due to the heat. Houyi a mythological Chinese archer was summoned to eliminate the suns and successfully shot down nine leaving the one sun needed to keep heaven and earth in perfect balance. This story and archery contrast the art and science of their approach to winemaking.

As with a number of their Pritchard Hill neighbors their own soils are extremely rocky and iron-rich red in color. This makes their varietals both exquisite and elegant to the taste. The focus of their production is a Cabernet Sauvignon centric Bordeaux styled blend that incorporates some of the other red varieties grown on-site. They produce an additional estate wine with the primary variety being Grenache along with some Syrah which is considered extremely rare in the Pritchard Hill region.

The winery itself was well designed with significant thought behind some of the details and aesthetics. @signumarchitecture did quite an amazing job creating an environment that invites you to experience a modern touch of tasting while enjoying some of the most spectacular views of the entire valley 🏹☀️
